Lift Kit Review/Pics Sticky

Alright guys. I want to make a pseudo-database of lift kit combinations. I am going to maintain this list for the time being with Pics, reviews and install notes. If you have a lifted truck, please PM or email me at bryce.eastlick@gmail.com with A SINGLE pic of your truck and include what lift combo you have as well as tire/wheel size and any sort of SHORT review or install notes that you may have. PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR USERNAME IN THE TITLE LINE. That will allow people to contact you with further questions and I can lable your pics/reviews accordingly. I am going to continue to edit this original post with updates as I get them or find them (or have the time to seek them out).
Thanks guys! And hopefully this helps streamline some questions and searches.

bigsarge:
2" level and 285/70 17's.

1500 Quad Cabs


NMBowtie:
"2" TGC in front, nothing in the rear, and 255/80/17 BFG MT's (34" tall). The spacer was good quality, and I never had any shake/wobble or noticed any extra wear and tear. I installed the spacer when the truck had about 3k miles on it and I was pushing 40k when I traded it off"



Thor09:
" 6" RCX on my 2012 Outdoorsman. I already had Bilstein 5100s maxed out and I put in a 3/4" Top Gun Customz rear coil spacer. I also put in Air Lift 1000 air bags."



Fingerbang:
Rough Country 6" Suspension Lift -- Black KMC SPY 17x9 (-12mm offset 4.53 BS)--- Nokian Vatiiva M/T 35x12.5R17 -- Hubcentric rings

Shots:
2012 QC 1500 Outdoorsman with only a 1.5" Auto Spring Level kit. It's the same type of level as Top Gunz Custom, and Hellbent Steel. I ordered 1.5" because the Outdoorsman sits .6" higher than other models due to different struts from the factory. My current height is 38" front and 39.5" rear.

2500 Crew Cabs

Wandell:
5 inch Rough Country lift. It is a "short arm" kit and the ride quality/performance is basically the same as stock. Most agree that the "long arm" kits ride better, but if all you want is added height the short arm kits are a great value. I'm running 355/60-20 (37x14.00) Nitto Terra Grapplers on 20x9 inch KMC XD Spys (with 4.5 inches of backspacing).

I think this is a great thread for everyone to use. I'll be throwing in 1.5" rear spacers to replace the 3/4" ones soon and I'll get you an updated picture. I could also give you a shot of my 09 with a 6" BDS and Bilsteins at 2.1" to add into the mix too

A similar thread for the lowered or stock height "street trucks" would be a great idea!

You can use the pics/info on my Power Wagon as well. I'm too tired to look it up, but if you run a search for "ICON edition" Power Wagon, something should pop up.

Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes.
That way, when you do criticize them, you're a mile away, and you have their shoes!

Hey BEsRaider, I have an issue with reading instructions. You can delete my post and take any info you desire. This is a great idea and I wish it was out there when I was doing all my research.

Keep Calm and Chive On!

Okay, I loaded BigHorn's. I am going to load Fast's and Nova's a little later. They each contributed 3 photos each, and I think will make a strong contribution to this thread, but it will take a little more time and frankly, I just lack the motivation at this moment. Check back later and this thread will probably grow by 50% or more with those two uploads!

ALRIGHT GUYS! I think this is completely up to date with all emails and PM's. Sorry for the delay, but life has been keeping my busy...and I haven't sat behind my computer long enough to do all of the uploads, especially for you dudes that sent me 3 or 4 phases!
Thanks again for the support, and let me know if there is anything I can do!
